So sorry this was not posted earlier. I have completely lost track of what day of the week it is. It feels like perpetual Wednesday at the moment.
That’s all right though. I have reached the end. Next week I begin putting my life back on its normal track. I am so ready for that.
Best of all, I will have a new short story called Alexander’s Den released very soon and I’m hoping that over the weekend I can get audio uploaded for Oxygen, my haunted highway story. And I can get back to painting. I have three new ideas that I’m excited to get to work on — the start of building a whole new body of artwork (it’s time!) So, you’ll have a couple new things too look forward to in the next little bit. Yippee!
For now though, let’s get you to this week’s chapter.
This is one of those chapters that will probably get rearranged when I begin to revise the book. You are getting this chapter because you get to see the book as it was written. The rest of the world will miss out!
I realized several hundreds (maybe thousands) of words later that if I had this scene here, then he had no motivation to go on. I’m not certain (at this moment of my writing these words here) if I began to develop the story with this scene missing or not. Sorry if it gets confusing later, but that’s why. I saw the flaw and I may have started to shift the sands then.
Although, I’ve also been questioning if I want Treshauna to know that he’s a genie. I wonder if I let that cat out of the bag too quickly. Cirvel and I need to sit down and have a chat about this and whether or not he would so easily give away his secrets, even if he is smitten. So, some of that may also be shifting.
Again, you get to see the good, bad, and the flawed here. *grin*
I have yet to take down the first 4 chapters (UPDATE: They are no longer posted), so if you want to read these, you still have a little time left. They won’t stay forever. These are only supposed to stay for a week (or two) then disappear. Best hurry along and get to reading them.
